The announcement comes after Colorado started the exodus of schools from the Pac-12 in late July. Oregon and Washington also left, moving to the Big Ten. All six teams will move to the respective conferences in 2024.
The Big 12 will have 16 schools in 2024. The 2023 additions of Cincinnati, BYU, UCF and Houston along with the departures of Texas and Oklahoma will bring the number to 16. As the Big 12 grows in number, the Pac-12 will have only four schools in 2024 unless more movement occurs.
